Get to know me

As a First Citizens commercial banker, it’s important to invest in understanding your business, strategies and key objectives. An established process and skilled team of specialists help me tailor solutions to fit you and your organization. Clients appreciate our trusted partnership in planning for long-term success.

I earned my Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from The University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and earned my Bachelors degree from Seton Hill University with a concentration in Finance and Marketing. I attended Seton Hill University on a basketball scholarship and played for four years and served three years as a team captain. My career includes over 20 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Commercial Banking and Small Business sectors. My specific focus has been working with clients in the Medical and Dental Community.

My spouse, Michael and I have been married for 16 years. We are the proud parents of one daughter, Addison, who will enter kindergarten soon. Michael serves as an attorney in the USMC.

I am passionate about serving our community of Wilmington and we enjoy supporting important local and international projects. I enjoy spending my spare time with my family, and we can be found boating and swimming along the North Carolina coast. I love to cook and enjoy entertaining my family and friends. Staying active through fitness is an important part of my life and includes strength training and running.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
